What brand of SSD? I’ve had zero problems and continue to be blown-away with the 6 or so that I’ve installed over the past 5 years both at home and at the station.

To the Braintrust:

I've now seen another "sudden, total, and without warning" failure of a new SSD. (Both in computers I have at home.)

When I say "No warning", I mean it was running one moment, then the next, BSOD! In both cases, the drive utterly "disappeared", and no attempt to access it works... USB external adapter, move to another machine, etc. It is utterly and completely DEAD!

How many others have seen this kind of dramatic and sudden death? Both drives in this scenario were 60 Gig, and were less than 30% full.

One of the drives, I took apart to see if perhaps a cap had exploded, or there was any sign of heat stress, etc... but no, it looked absolutely pristine.

Thankfully, I have backups! This kind of failure just bumps-up the urgency of making backups more often!
